The Taylor Swift Book Tag: 1989 Edition #1

So on both the blogs and on booktube, I have seen the 1989 Taylor Swift tag doing the rounds after the album came out last year. Being a massive fan of Taylor Swift's music I thought that I would do the tag. I haven't been tagged by anyone but it looked fun. This tag was created by Sarah-Jane at the Booklife and you can find it here. So let's get started...

1. Shake it Off - 'The haters gonna hate hate hate' - Which book criticisms do you shake off regardless of what people think?

Take Back the Skies (Take Back the Skies, #1)Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon- this book currently has a 3.39 star rating on goodreads and has a lot of DNF'ed statuses  but I am really enjoying it. Although when I started to read it I didn't find it amazing as it progresses I am enjoying it even more and to me it's going to be a 4 star book. 

2. I Know Places - 'Loose lips sink ships all the damn time' - Which ship do you set your heart on, only to watch it sink?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
The Maze Runner series-Thomas and Teresa- Although there is no direct fact that they are together in the books, I did like them as a couple especially with the telepathy as it made them have a connection but all doesn't go to plan... 

3. Wonderland - 'We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it' - Which fictional character would you like to take with you to another land?

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)The Iron Fey series- Puck- I love Puck and he is one of my favourite characters in this series. I feel like he knows enough about fantasy worlds that I feel he would be able to guide me and help me. He also has a great personality. 

4. Wildest Dreams - 'He’s so bad but he does it so well' - Which character do you love, not in spite of his darkness but because of his darkness?

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)If you saw my Top 5 Wednesday post then you will know that I dislike likable villains but I do like Warner from Shatter Me to an extent and he is quite dark which does make him quite likable. 

5. Out of The Woods - 'When you started crying baby I did too' -Name a time you cried with a fictional character.

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief-Liesel- This is one of my favourite books of all time and the end of the book is a heartbreaker and I was definitely crying with Liesel inside as a book has never made me cry. 

6. Clean - 'The drought was the very worst' - Which anticipated book release felt/feels like the longest wait ever?

The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #3)The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa- I read the second book in this series last year and I have been waiting for this series for what seems like a lifetime and I can't wait for this to come out.  

7. Bad Blood - 'Band aids don’t fix bullet holes' - Pick a book that gave you the most painful of feels.

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault In Our Stars by John Green- I don't think I need to explain this one...

8. Blank Space - 'Lets be friends, I’m dying to see how this one ends' -Which final book in a trilogy or series were you most nervous about reading?

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- It's safe to I was "dying to see how this one ends" and to be honest I don't know if I was that disappointed in the ending to this series but it did have some flaws. 

9. Style - 'Cos we never go out of style' -Which three authors writing styles do you love?

Severed Heads, Broken HeartsRobyn Schneider- I love her writing it is simple but I love the way that she incorporates references that her readers will understand like the Harry Potter references in her books and social media. 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Tahereh Mafi- I love her writing, enough said...

Paper TownsJohn Green- It's John Green! To me, I love his writing, yes his plots can sometimes be repetitive but I do really love his writing. The way that he writes his characters makes me relate to them. I just love it okay. As if I didn't say it enough...

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...
